"I want to show this woman off", Bryan gushed. "It was tough to watch as a man". Bryan was still presented in the caddy and overly charismatic way that fans had come to expect (and loathe).
Although Bryan and Rachel had a strong connection off the bat, her feelings towards him leading up to the dramatic proposal scene at a hilltop church courtyard in the Spanish countryside had waned.
The Fantasy Suite with Peter was incredible. Again, Peter is allowed to be cautious about one of the biggest decisions of his life, but then why was he a contestant on a show that notably squishes "falling in love" into less than three months?
Kraus acknowledged he would have needed more life experience with her to make such a commitment. Along with flashing her 3-carat Neil Lane sparkler, estimated to be worth $100,000, Rachel dished on their wedding plans and future together. "I see my forever", she told him. Since it was obvious that Eric would be the bronze medalist here, I'll focus on Rachel's dress, which looked kind of like something the Red Knight would wear at Medieval Times. When she told him this process wasn't right for him, she was telling him "I see what you're doing, and I don't approve".
"I'd pick Peter every single time. I feel like he was giving me just enough to keep me and string me along, rather than being forthcoming with everything", she continued.
But on "Live With Kelly and Ryan", Ryan Seacrest seemed shaken by what he had seen between Peter and Rachel. And 10 minutes after we should have had love, we're sitting with a sad Peter, a potentially sad Rachel, and still no Bryan.
Charlize Theron told Andy Cohen on "Watch What Happens Live!" that Lindsay "is smart, she is sexy, she is lovely". Bryan - the man who consumes Rachel's face whenever they're making out, so it looks like, as my friend says, "a dementor sucking the soul out of a lovely and innocent muggle" - and Rachel are engaged.
Will Rachel and Bryan beat the fateful "Bachelor" couples curse?
"I am the best version of myself when I'm with you", he said. They both cry. "I think we're both going to regret this decision", Peter says.
Although they are now ready to live under the same roof, the couple said that they are still in the early stages of planning for the big day.
"While things didn't end the way that I hoped, I have you to thank for the feelings I did have", he told Lindsay. "You are so easy and effortless to love, and I want to love you for the rest of my life". From then on, she was clearly smitten by the Colombian although she said throughout the season that she thought he was too good to be true. "By mere gesture of choosing to participate in this television show though, all involved have shown bravery and resolve that I think everyone should aspire to in their private and public lives alike".
